Temple Map

A gorgeous 34" x 26" map of the temple in the starter adventure is available in digital and physical formats.

  • You can download a 34" x 26" poster-sized image of the temple map from the starter adventure, with a 1" grid perfect for use with miniatures, right here (coming soon). If you download it, you will get a giant PDF.  To print it in sections suitable for a regular home printer using Acrobat Reader (other software may vary) select Print from the File menu, and then click on the Poster button (shown here). This will print it in a series of letter-sized pages which you can assemble into the full map.
  • Alternatively, here it is as a giant jpeg in case you have access to a print shop and want to arrange your own printing, or need it for digital/online gaming tools.
